of the university of denver. 8:00 p.m. eastern, president obama and mitt romney will face off in their first of three debates. we have an all star panel tonight. former congressman rick lazio and former clinton white house aide keith boykin. and herman cain tells us what it's like to debate kevin madden. it's all about leadership and leadership means taking control of the conversation. that's just my advice. in an anemic overall economy, we've seen some positives in recent days. the ism services surprised on the up side today, 15 million car sales yesterday and of course stocks have been rising since a year ago today. the s&p is up 32%. so things can't be all that bad. how will the investor class vote in 34 days? but first up, both mitt romney and president obama are in their respective hotel rooms now. they're making final preparations for the big debate and cnbc's own john harwood joins us live with the details. good evening, john. >> good evening, larry. two hours from that debate we've gotten a reminder in the last 24 hours with a slew of polls of how high the stakes are in this debate.
familiar? reagan. the market by the way loved it. stocks up 81 points on the dow. call it the romney rally. plus lastly america's brave warriors are being denied the right to vote. this is a terrible story. why is team obama and the pentagon not helping our fighting men and women cast their absentee ballots? we will have that story. >>> the day after mitt romney politely and respectfully cleaned obama's clock president obama tried to quickly turn the page. cnbc's amin javers has more. >> reporter: the day after the debate strategy tells you which campaign this they won last night and which did not win. mitt romney spoke on tv after the network newscasts had gone on the air. that forced the tv networks through the day and the evening broadcast this is evening to use pictures from last night's debate again and again. president barack obama, however, had two rallies including one in denver, colorado where he had sort of a chance to do a do-over from last night. take a listen. >> when i got onto the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. but it couldn't have been
kudlow. this is "the kudlow report." with mitt romney's resounding victory last week and his continuing victory the week after the debate and the fact that he is not rolling in momentum in the polls, the whole race has changed. barack obama was casing big bird for a week. he fell right into a trap, and that's why, folks, i venture this veep debate tonight could be far more significant than usual, and team obama is leaving it up to uncle joe biden to make their comeback. oh, boy. biden will have to make the case that president obama deserves a second term, and no one, including obama himself, has yet made that case. former presidential candidate newt gingrich who knows a thing or two about all of this is my very special guest. also this evening, the u.s. embassy in yemen was attack. expect the consulate attack in benghazi will be brought up in the debate tonight. neither president obama for vice president biden has faced the press with any tough questions about what did they know and when did they know it about bengz? and how dare team obama call this a political issue stirred up by repu
candidate himself, howard dean and tennessee republican house member and romney surrogate marcia blackburn. i want to ask you what is going on here. is hillary trying to take the fall for barack obama? i don't understand the dynamic here. >> this is five weeks, we have been five weeks. we don't have the answers. we lost the life of one of our ambassadors. and that is one of the good reasons for our intelligence committee and our government reform. holding hearings and starting to get to the bottom of this and figure out who knew what and when. the intelligence sources, that is the part that baffles me. i have to ask you. you look at this thing. hillary takes the blame. okay fine. >> but basically, my question is, who invented the cook and bull story that susan rice and others tried to sell that this was all because of a youtube video. that story has never been denied and it could have been -- where did that come from? >> this is pretty disgraceful. five weeks after 9/11 we weren't wondering why george bush wasn't taking responsibility for it. we supported the president. i think you should
debate. romney is totally debate fit in my opinion. he is in fighting shach after demolishing ten opponents in 20 debates. mr. obama on the other hand, he's a bit doughy, i don't think he's in shape for this. and by the way, just minutes ago, north korea accused the united states of plotting to attack it as a steppingstone to dominate asia and has used the word nuclear war. well, how does president obama plan on handling these nut jobs? let me tell you that wednesday's debate, romney is going to broaden his message to include foreign policy. >>> plus we have a surprise increase in the ism manufacturing report. >>> plus again bernanke defends his debt plan. he's enabling the obama treasury to sell trillions of dollars in deficits. >>> hundreds of mexicans are involved in the fast and furious. this is a terrible story, hundreds of mexicans may be involved. should attorney general holder be fired immediately over this new information? >>> the ism signals no recession, that's good. but is the obama-bernanke qe stimulus plan going to bail out the president in this election and what abo
tonight? >> what i'm watching for is how mitt romney takes advantage of this huge opportunity that he's got with tens of millions of americans watching these two side by side. he's behind in the polls, but not by an overwhelming margin. three points in our nbc/wall street journal poll. i talked to devine who was the campaign strategist for al gore. when gore lost the election, in the debates he said here's what's mitt romney's got to do. he's got to figure a line of attack that at the same time makes president obama looks bad, makes him look good, and press that through the entire 90 minutes. it's an economy debate. that is supposed to be mitt romney's wheel house. we'll see if he can pull that off in the right tone against a popular president. it's hard. there's always risk when you attack the president. mitt romney doesn't have much choice but to try to do it. we'll see where the help of jim lehrer, the moderator, exactly how he uses this moment. >> talk to you in a moment. whenever there's a big night involving politics, you can bet larry kudlow is involved. he's here on set with u
report." mitt romney unveils his foreign policy strategy. he says the obama white house botched the response to the terrorist attack on the u.s. embassy in benghazi. cnbc's own john harwood has the latest. good evening, john. >> good evening, larry. mitt romney tried to build on his successful debate last week by talking foreign policy today and attacking president obama as simply not someone leading. >> i know the president hopes for a safer, freer, and more prosperous middle east allied with us. i share this hope. hope is not a strategy. >> we don't know if that line is going to work, but we know from new polls out today he's made significant headway since the debate. puts a lot of pressure on the vice presidential debate later this week. we'll talk about it at athe bottom of the hour. >> we will see you later on that very topic. also this evening, one battleground state, michigan, will vote on a state constitutional amendment to allowing collective bargaining, unlimited wage increases, and unchecked union power. michigan's governor rick snyder says how it will disrupt his sta
but it is not the end of the world. >> mitt romney did what he needed to do. the polls show that the momentum continues with romney ahead in a couple of polls. first up our top story, the dow taking a hit. companies warning the economy the worst than ever. >> let's put europe aside. it seems that investigator einv level on the dow. and 1400 on the s&p. and we did dip on the nasdaq today. profits disappointed and it seems frantic to cut costs. many disappointed on price. everybody was confused on getting the ipad four. that seems to be the case and facebook cramer talked about it. up 13% that revenue on the add side better than expected back to you. fast money contributor, brian kelly, good evening, gentleman, as i recall, you have been expecting a correction. now, my question to you, is this the end of the world or are we going to go to the bottom and what is going to happen next? help me out. i don't think this is a major pull back. this is just a bit of a drift lower. we hold to our outlook. it would be a buying opportunity. there is a bright spot. a lot of companies with exposed earnings here. we ha
net for obama and throw romney off his game. take a listen to this. >> took the president 14 days before he called the attack in benghazi an act of terror. >> get the transcript. >> he did in fact, sir. let me call it an act of terror -- >> say that a little louder, candy. >> he did call it an act of terror. >> here's the problem. he did not. and crowley knows it. since the debate she has recanted. pay close attention to this piece of sound from the president the day after the attack. >> no acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for. >> the bottom line is mitt romney actually had that right and the president still to the best of my knowledge, still has not explicitly called the attack the at benghazi an act of terror. a former clinton white house aid and author of outpub numbered chronicles of a manhattan conservative. has obama said it is a pre-planned terrorist attack? >> i have yet to hear it. he went on "the view" and went before the u.n., those were all opportunities and some cases
a listen to what he told abc's diane sawyer that's airing just minutes ago. >> governor romney had a good night. i had a bad night. it's not -- >> bad? >> it's not the first time i've had a bad night. >> they chant "four more years." and today, there are 28 days before the election. i think the right chant ought to be for them "four more weeks." you've got the idea. >> there you have it. also this evening, for the first time in months, the market hit a back-to-back triple-digit decline. we warned you last night earnings might give the market a little bit of a hit. go ahead, boys. take some chips off the table. nothing wrong with that. but let me tell you, a political revolution is coming in 27 days. and for the first time here on "the kudlow report," i feel comfortable to tell you, mitt romney is going to win and he's going to win big. it's going to be a reagan-like economic growth revolution. that's what the debate told me and that's what the polls are telling me. and i make it official tonight. >>> also this evening, my old pal, art laffer, is going to blast obama and tell you why mitt
. that is good for the economy. especially as we move toward the romney boom. now, let's move to our investor pros. break down today's market plunge. here now is "fast money" contributor brian kelly, the co-founder of shelter hoover capital. and steven weiss of short hills capital and author of "the big win." brian kelly, was this predominantly today a technology correction that spread? is that the bottom, bottom line? >> yeah. especially when you look at other asset classes. i mean, we look at the euro. that was barely down today. you look at bonds. they weren't reaching for bonds. the dollar index was barely up. it wasn't up 1% or 2%. it was up less than a half percent, i believe. so it was. it was people repricing, getting out of tech stocks that for some reason they didn't see before that there actually might be a problem in europe. and now we've certainly gone the other direction from where we were on september 13th, 14th. the euphoria over the policy action. now we're at that despair of wow, everything could be really terrible. and i'm with you, larry. i think this is a buying opportuni

floats your boat. on a day when many stocks were buoyed by mitt romney's victory over president obama, let me tell you how i watched. i watched the debate within the parlance of my world, the stock world. i watched it with an eye towards making you some money. tweeting every potential stock idea triggered by either gentleman. ♪ how can you try to make money from the debate? let me parse it for you. show you how it's done. going over the actual statements by each candidate translating them into cramerican. let me tell you, there were tons of cramericans on twitter. if you tweeted me about the debate, keep an eye on the twicker running below. you may see your tweet. romney went right into a call for north american energy self-sufficiently, singling out coal as an endangered species under obama. listen. >> i like coal. i want to make sure we can continue to burn clean coal. people in the coal industry feel like it's getting crushed by your policies. >> lots of bozos went in and bought the coal stocks. all the coal stocks on. this wrong take away, people! coal's hostage to chinese deman
as the romney roll continues. scott rasmussen has three polls showing a dead heat in battle ground states, hai, virginia, florida. even the liberal magazine "the new yorker" sees it on their front cover, mitt romney pulling a clint eastwood, debating an empty chair. first up, it was the tweet that was heard around the world. my good friend jack welch set off a social media firestorm. take a look at his tweet. "unbelievable jobs numbers. these chicago guys will do anything. can't debate so change numbers, end quote. he's chase by accusing the white house of skewing the data to help president obama. earlier on cnbc, u.s. labor secretary fired back with this response. please take a listen. >> these are our best trained and best skilled individuals that have been working in the bls and it's really ludicrous to hear that kind of statement. >> here now is the legendary jack welch, former ge chairman, ceo and great friend of "the kudlow report." it's great to see you. i don't feel like defending obama, i don't feel like defending the labor secretary but i got to tell you, i worked in the white house
-up of the question, which really i think was helpful for romney with the independent voters he gave a devastating critique of obama's tenure in office, all the things he did from obama care, to dodd/frank, and then all the things he didn't do. social security reform, medicare reform. >> would it have been a great chance for the president to mention housing recovery, which most would agree was in the first stage, didn't mention it? >> i think it was mitt romney's strongest answer in the entire debate. i think he did a great job as jim nelson pointed out as listing his accomplishments, the jobs, the private sector job growth, he mentioned the war in iraq, the osama bin laden attack. i think he was successful throughout the night, because on every question he pivoted and turned it into an attack on mitt romney, which is something he completely failed to do in the first debate. it was a much more forceful debate for him, for the undecided. ultimately, i don't think there are that many undecided voters. >> well, he was on the attack, no doubt about it, much more aggressive, but larry's point about a l
romney comes out swinging in his first debate with president obama with the two men sparring over how to fix the u.s. economy. waiting on spain, the ecb expected to hold steady on rates. country's president tells cnbc that europe's policymakers must remain focused. >> if we get bogged down into what was meant by the june agreements and waste time on this kind of discussions, then it's much less likely that a coherent system will emerge. >> madrid continues to put faith in the hands of private investors while finance minister heads to london to raise funds for the country's bad bank. and india's crucial services sector grows at its fastest rate in seven months, while the government gets set to take another swing at boosting it through foreign investments. thanks very much for joining me. anyone that's missing ross, he'll be back in tomorrow. but for now, you're all mine. . plenty to come on the next couple hours of the show. lots of guests to help us figure out what's going on. we'll get a view from sydney about cautious shoppers. borrowing costs are expected to fall. we'll bring you t
. talking to romney advisors, this is their closing strategy. coming out of the first two presidential debates they see a big opening on polity and on vision. if it turns out that the president doesn't have a good vision for -- >> it's partly a referendum on the economy and it's pointing out what romney's plan is, 20% across the board tax cut, but what romney's doing now is that the president could earn on rom hi he he he doesn't have a tax plan, romney wants to point out out to the voters. >> obama does have a tax plan, he wants to raise taxes on small business owners, raise taxes on business and raise taxes on entrepreneurs and raise taxes. >> the obama job plan is sitting in congress, it's inactive, nothing's happening on that front, the president's just going to let these tax cuts expire, so this really comes down to the ideological choice for voters as an alternative or is it more of the same. >> obama -- even if he loses, he wants to raise tax rates on the upper income and he's willing to let all taxes go up north to get that. now mitt romney is a leader. mitt romney is a deal ma
, after last night's debate i keep picking those hot romney stocks and sectors. good evening, everyone, i'm larry kudlow. this is "the kudlow report." our top story tonight, paul ryan's resounding victory in last night's debate with vice president joe biden. the first ten minutes sealed it. 43 million people watched and the polls are showing a snap cnn poll gave the win to ryan and so did the cnbc survey. biden's snarky, disrespectful laughing and out-of-control interruptions hurt him enormously. plus, he gave no reason for barack obama to be reelected ryan played and cool and smart. the best line today from marco rubio. take a listen to this. >> let me tell you, it's not easy to do a good job onstage when you have a heckler on the stage with you. >> biden misled everyone with a string of falsehoods. tonight we have the man who developed the cia's program that detects deception. what you'll hear from him is going to shock you. then again, maybe it won't. >> plussic brai ibreaking news, panetta warns a cyber pearl harbor is about to happen and the fingerprints point to iran. also tonight,
romney says he will reach across the aisle to make various fiscal deals and president obama just didn't do that, didn't have the capacity to do it, didn't seem to have the interest to do it, that's the political dynamic out on the campaign trail. what i'm asking you is are there democrats and republicans, let's start in the senate, one hears a group of six, a group of eight, a group of 12, people like that who can find common ground that will stop this big tax hike, that will help manufacturing, that will give you a corporate tax cut, for example, which i know you all want. is there a leadership, a d and an r that could find common ground and lead to us the promised land. >> it's not just corporate taxes but also individuals. two-thirds of manufacturers pay taxes at the individual tax rate. to your question about who is helping who is not, we're hearing a lot of rhetoric from both sides and frankly we haven't seen a lot of action. here we are two months before the december 31st deadline, ten days before an election and nothing has happened. this is not exactly as if this problem mater
